Living Streets’ Walk to School Week is over for another year and we’d like to thank everyone who took part and contributed to it being another massive success, with a million children, parents and teachers across the UK enjoying the many benefits of the walk to school.

However, just because the week of celebration is over, it doesn’t mean you have to stop. Walking to school all year round can save money, teach children independence, road safety and social skills, and is an easy way to build activity into a child’s day. More children walking to school also means less traffic congestion, making it safer for everyone.
